Family / Friend Referral

If you are making a referral on behalf of another person as a parent, family member or friend etc. please complete the following form.

Where the person is an adult, please also ensure you have consent from the individual before making the referral.

Please be mindful if the individual and/or family are open to another therapeutic intervention, then, unfortunately, they can not be referred to an external agency for therapy.

The Headlight Project provides Counselling and Therapeutic support to people bereaved by suicide in the Tees Valley area. We aim to be in touch within 7 days from your date of referral. However, this may be longer during periods of annual leave.

Please note – The Headlight Project is not a general well-being, grief counselling or crisis service and we are unable to accept any referrals for individuals open to Secondary Care Mental Health services. If you need immediate crisis support, please click here for further help and support.
